The opportunity to see the Golden Prague (hundred spires) in a short time.


You'll be picked up at your hotel or other convenient place. We ride the minivan straight to the top of castle hill, where we spend about 30 minutes, walking through all 3 of its courtyards and enjoy breathtaking views of the city from above. Then we hop on the hour-long minivan tour around the city.

Further on, we'll walk through the streets of the historical Lesser Town, cross the famous, 14th century Charles Bridge, and on the other side of the Vltava river, we stroll the charming streets of the Old Town and the Jewish Quarter, until reaching the very heart of it, the Old-Town Square area! Here we will watch, on top of the hour, the famous "Astronomical Clock" in action!

Afterward, we board the minivan again, and we will take you back to your hotel. At this point, you can also choose to stay here and enjoy the rest of your day within this attractive area; the guide will tell you the way back to your hotel. During this tour we will see all the "essential" parts of Prague (Praha)! Enjoy the experience!
